Unassisted double plays are nothing new in baseball, but they don’t usually come courtesy of the left fielder.
Jonny Gomes pulled off that rare feat Wednesday night — in the 15th inning, no less. With two men on and one out in a 4-4 game, Seattle’s Michael Saunders sent a sinking line drive into left field. Gomes robbed Saunders with a diving grab, however, before trotting to second base to double up Raul Ibanez.
The play ended the top of the 15th inning, and Stephen Drew‘s walk-off single in the bottom of the frame won it for the Red Sox.
